Yixing for the Glass floor bamboo forest, Linggu Cave etc.

sunny 30 °F

This whole town is built on one road and there is one bus going up and down this road. It reminded me a lot of Niagara on the Lake, except this town has a lot of tearooms instead of wineries. The bus only came once every 30 minutes, so of course, there was was no room on the bus so I just sat on the floor:

First stop in the morning was the glass plank floor in the bamboo forest:

They put hammocks in the bamboo forest:

OK, then the second stop was this weird place called "Purple Sea Valley Paradise" or some such crazy name. It seemed to be some sort of amusement park that was half closed down. Anyways, I got a free ride on a little car that drove underneath a waterfall. I took a video, and it's on Facebook. I guess Travellerspoint doesn't host videos.

I took lots of photos of this place, which was quite depressing while at the same time strangely captivating. But it was hot, so I couldn't stay too long.

"Bujie" Cafe, I see what you did there...

After all that, I was too hot, so I went down underground for the natural air conditioning of Linggu Cave.

This is the "1,000 Buddha Mountain". The little rocks look like little Buddhas.

The cave was enormous, with three separate parts to the cave complex:

This waterfall wasn't running when I went down, so I decided something was wrong and ran out, terrified:

A little rock bridge through a little cave-pond:

When I got back, this lady made me a delicious crepe with all kinds of random stuff in it:

Thanks for the all the flower pictures again. The cave looks great but I could not have walked on the glass floor through the bamboo forest! Those things are too scary for me.:)
